Overview:

NaturalMotion’s top flight Data Science team employs cutting-edge technology to provide self-service data tools and deep-dive analysis. These tools and analysis help us to make amazing games: we work closely with product teams to constantly improve our games and make them better and more fun through data.

We have a big data store of over 250TB and more than 100 bespoke data processing jobs that run daily. You will take ownership for a project broaching a new domain for our team, within highly employable fields such as Machine Learning, Data Mining and Visualisation.

You’ll be supported by a mentor who will take responsibility for your personal development and share expertise with you to ensure your project’s success. Example projects include:

  • Predicting the long-term behaviour of game users from their actions in their first few sessions.
  • Predicting if a user will lapse from the game according to their recent behaviour.
  • Modelling a game subsystem or building a simulation to understand player behaviour and optimise the game’s design.
  • Build tools for advanced data mining of large data sets.
  • Creating toolsets to visualise and evaluate AB test results and their statistical significance.

The internship is structured so that:

  • In the first week you will learn to use our team’s data science tools to generate insight from raw data and understand how these tools will help you with your project.
  • By the end of the first month you will have had exposure to the variety of work tackled by a live Data Science team and how to communicate the insight generated to stakeholders across the company.
  • By the end of the internship you will have developed a specialisation in your unique project area and will present your discoveries to senior members of the company.

From the internship you will have gained:

  • Significant experience in working in Data Science, including the terminology and techniques that exist for finding insights in large datasets.
  • Expertise in your own domain within a highly employable field.
  • An insider perspective into the games industry and an understanding of how the business model works, especially for free-to-play mobile games.
  • Experience in project management and communication to all project stakeholders.

Requirements:

  • You are in the penultimate year of your university degree or about to embark on a postgraduate degree.
  • You can code and enjoy hacking/building things, preferably in Python.
  • The idea of drawing insights from data to improve products excites you.
  • You have a natural curiosity for the pattern behind things and an interest in mobile games.

What you need to include in your application:

  • CV
  • A cover letter telling us why you’re interested and why you would be a good fit for the role.
